Ghana's No. 1

Tranmere beat Brackley to progress

Published on: 27 November 2020

Tranmere Rovers have now reached the third round in the last three seasons

Substitute Kaiyne Woolery scored a beautiful goal to send League Two Tranmere Rovers into the FA Cup third round at the expense of Brackley Town.

In a game of few clear-cut chances, Woolery came off the bench on the hour mark to curl in off the right-hand post from 18 yards.

The closest sixth-tier Brackley came was when Shepherd Murombedzi's left foot shot went wide from 12 yards.

The third-round draw is live on BBC One at 19:00 GMT on Monday.

The game was Brackley's fifth in this year's competition, and while they acquitted themselves well against a team 56 places higher in the football pyramid, they lacked the necessary quality in the final third to present any meaningful problems to Tranmere.

The win is Keith Hill's second since taking charge of the Merseyside club last weekend.

Tranmere Rovers boss Keith Hill speaking to BBC Sport: "It was a difficult fixture - it was a good goal. They made it very awkward with the two defensive midfielders they played with and our diamond.

"We had to try and stretch the game in the second half and get the ball into the wide areas. It's a good goal and I'm so glad that the substitutions worked.

"I'm pleased with the performance and the clean sheet and we're into the next round."
